*The Uniform Holiday Act of 1968 was implemented in 1971 and provided for a designation of the third Monday in the month, as observation days for federal holidays from fixed dates to the third Monday in the month.
President’s Day began solely as a holiday for President George Washington’s birthday on February 22nd, according to an Act of Congress in 1879.
The holiday provided inclusion for all federal offices in 1885 and in 1951 the concept of observing all presidents (or the office of the presidency) was initiated by the President’s Day National Committee.
By 1971, the Uniform Monday Holiday Act established the third Monday in February as President’s Day. The nation observed Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Lincoln, Madison, Monroe and the list goes on. Our patriotism as played out by celebrating some American feats, while choosing to block out other torrid times under any number of Commanders and Chiefs.
Then came the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama. He changed the face and the pace of politics in America, and became a well loved world leader.
